Review Sioux City
Born/raised in Sioux City. Sioux City Community School District (public) both as a student and staff member. Sioux City offers a lot as far as ways to get involved and stay entertained. Many parks and recreational facilities, movie theaters, bowling alleys, and restaurants, shopping centers, and a thriving arts community. Community-wide festivals each year: Saturday in the Park, Greek Fest, Art Splash, Mardi Gras Parades, etc. Sioux City is growing and expanding. NEW Hard Rock Casino/Resort, restaurants, and attractions. Sioux City is a great place to raise a family. Sioux City, once called "Little Chicago," has a rich history and is a known site for Lewis and Clark .There are many philanthropies, out-reach programs, and churches in the area. Sioux City is a central location, ideal for traveling/visiting Omaha, NE; Sioux Falls, SD; etc. Quality medical facilities. Hot/humid Summers. Very cold Winters. Lovely Spring/Fall- the people make up for it.
I like all the different places to shop and the beautiful river side. It is a big city with a lot of different things to do. It is very diverse with all the different ethnicities in one area. It is expanding with more hotels, apartment complexes. Shopping mall is awesome! Schools are good and offer great curriculum and extracurricular activities.
Sioux City, IA is an average town with a metro area populous of around 100K +. The city is working hard to create new and fun attractions, as the city has lacked these in the past. They are also working to become a entrepreneur-friendly city, encouraging people to start their own businesses with different incentives. There are cities directly North (North Sioux City) & South (South Sioux City) in South Dakota and Nebraska, respectively. The real estate market is somewhat fair, but has been a little higher in the last few years due to a surge in home buying. The city sits on the Missouri river and has several local lakes, making it an excellent, boater friendly community. There is also a Hard Rock Casino, Orpheum Theater and separate Events Center that host a lot of local shows and entertainment. Overall, Sioux City is a decent city that offers a lot of shopping and entertainment for the vast Siouxland area which encompasses 3 different states.
